A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
The trip to the beach had been a grand adventure for Fluff and humans alike. They’d had a wonderful time! Nosy had revelled in slithering after balls and that clever flying plate Ianto called Frisbee; it had been cooped up for far too long during a spell of bad weather so the exercise was more than welcome. So too was the opportunity to take a thorough dust bath. Rolling in sand left its coat sleek and gleaming, in tip-top condition.
Afterwards it had napped in the sunshine, soaking up the warmth while Jack and Ianto splashed about at the edge of the water, which was fine for humans because they didn’t go all soggy the way a Fluff did; each to their own kind of fun.
Nosy hadn’t wanted to leave, but it supposed all good things had to come to an end eventually, and its humans had promised it they’d go again sometime soon.
Although their time at the beach had been fun, Nosy was quite glad to be home. Dipping its snout in its water bowl, it took a long slurp. Ah, that hit the spot! Nothing beat fresh water for quenching thirst. Seawater was altogether too salty!
